My body clock had been set at 5am. Papa was already tuning up the jeep when I went out in the front yard. He asked me for a cup of coffee and asked if I can clean our bahay kubo. I haven't done that for a long while, but I don't think I need an energy bar or something close to horse supplements for me to do the job. Besides, the kubo is not that spacious, hehe.

I still remember how I literally was on the edge of our livingroom sofa when Hilary Swank's character in Million Dollar Baby went from the victor to the victim. In Changeling, Angelina Jolie's character went the other way around; from being the sobbing victim to being the victorious hero. The film is set in the 1920s and and tells a true story about Christine Collin's search for her son and finding out that the 9-year-old might have been one of the victims of the series of murders that happened in Los Angeles during those times. Women disempowerment and the unjust ways of the authorities were strongly presented in this biopic thriller.

I was like huh? and thought he was kidding. So I sent him a reply
Of course, I was a bit convinced that he would reply the punchline of the would-be joke and say "...yung ulo mo lang. Diba black ang hair mo ngayon?" Or something that would emphasize that he saw me amidst the sea of people in that concert, which was impossible because I was in the masa portion of the concert venue. The cameras hover ones or twice with a maximum speed of 100kph per second...okay that was an exaggeration. But then Eric yet again replied and said
I was interviewed by THE Quark Henares for Rakista, the show he directs in TV5 that night though. I even watched the segment when it aired months ago and hopefully they'll air a replay of that episode every once in a while. And I was informed that the interview was ONLY for that show and nothing more. I texted Ina (the one I'm with in the picture) about it since we were both interviewed that night and said that the producers might have included the fan interviews on the DVD.
My skepticism grew, so I decided to drop by the nearest record station and bought a copy of the DVD before going home. I'm not really feeling well that time and went to bed as soon as I got home. I was able to watch the DVD on Saturday morning. I clicked on the Special Features section of the DVD and played "Behind The Scenes", and found this clip:
Video Courtesy: Pieworks ProductionsI found myself a bit teary-eyed after watching the clip. I told Ina that her interview didn't make the final cut of the DVD. She was happy for me though, and said that out of thousands I was among the lucky fans who, together with the Eraserheads, was somewhat immortalized in Reunion Concert DVD.
I am such a fan girl.

Sam (Molly Ringwald) sort of reminded me of my sixteen-year-old self; obnoxious, awkward and had a big crush on some guy. I can't remember if my crush was among the most popular guys back then, but he was no Jake Ryan. I also did not exist in his world not until one day when he asked me if I can give his love letter to one of my classmates, which I happily did because he finally knew who I was. Hehe. The conversation between Sam and her father was my favorite scene in the entire movie. Admit it or not, but having a crush was such a big deal when you're sixteen and talking about it with your father is the most embarassing thing. But as they say, fathers know their daughters best. Fathers have this unexplainable sensitivity when it comes to their daughters where no words can explain. And now I know the logic as to why we call "crushes" as such because of Sam's dad. Having a crush is meant to be a challenge. It can either "crush" you in a good or a bad way --"...if it was easy then they'd call it something else." Sixteen Candles is one of those films that I will definitely watch over and over.
